The Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 tire is a best-selling winter tire for cars and minivans. It has outstanding snow traction and ice grip for maximum winter safety and driving security. It uses Bridgestone Tire's most advanced Multi-Cell Compound. This new rubber is more porous than other rubber compounds so it actually helps pull moisture away from the road allowing the rubber to make contact with the surface and prevent hydroplaning. Another outstanding feature of the Blizzak WS80 tire are the 3D zigzag sipes with block stiffness control. This technology allows for more biting edges without compromise to the stability of the blocks, or the footprint and contact patch shape.
